I might not understand you question correctly, I assumed we don't
differentiate between types. Return the complete list and let the user
decide what to do with it.

I haven't tested this but I would assume nothing will happen. These
files are all considered under control of ConnMan. So if you remove
those while ConnMan is running, it wont notice it. Hmm, to get this
working correctly we might need to add a RemoveKnownNetwork call. I want
to avoid to have ConnMan monitoring the storage directory (it's fragile
stuff and difficult to get right).

If we go down the road with RemoveKnownNetwork, then I suggest the
GetKnownNetwork call returns the object path, not the storage path.

Sorry for this late enlightenment from my side. I didn't realize all the
impacts when we started the discussion.

I can't remember all the details around AutoConnect. It's a difficult
feature as it set on the first successful connect attempt. If
configuration files are involved there are other rules.

Immutable is derived from the fact if there is a config file, the
service immutable. It doesn't really make sense to make this
